Editor Rating

The Xiaomi Poco M5 is a much-awaited upgrade to the popular M series of the famous sub-brand, which features a more refined and understated design that is highlighted by the special leather texture on the rear panel. The new triple camera array is housed inside a wide camera bump that covers most of the back panel at the top. This panel features a plain matte black look that contrasts nicely with the leather texture. You also get a more responsive 90Hz IPS display, which features an FHD+ resolution as well as HDR support.


Bottom Line

Xiaomi Poco M5 is an affordable mid-range smartphone that offers a decent level of performance for its price range, along with a responsive display and large battery to accommodate all your entertainment needs. Everything is powered off of a reliable Helio G99 processor, which can handle most day-to-day tasks with ease.
